Second Man Arrested In Brownsburg Murder, Kidnapping

Brownsburg Police say Julio Caesar Bonilla drove the getaway car for Christhian Garcia, who's accused of shooting two people and fleeing with his three kids.

BROWNSBURG, Ind. – Two people have been arrested in connection with a double shooting at a Brownsburg distribution center Tuesday evening that left one man dead and seriously injured a woman.

The shooting happened in the parking lot at HomeGoods Distribution Center on Northfield Drive.

Jennifer Barrett with Brownsburg Police said Alicia Canise Canizales, 22, and Jesus Huesca, 26, were shot multiple times during shift change at the distribution center. Both were rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

Huesca later died at the hospital, according to family members.

Canise Canizales is awake and talking but her condition remains serious, according to Barrett.

After interviewing witnesses at the shooting scene, police surrounded a home around 2 a.m. near Bertha Street and Warman Avenue where they believed the shooter, Christhian Garcia, was hiding with his children. 

After a standoff that lasted over three hours, police used two flash bangs to enter the home but found no sign of Garcia or the children. An Amber Alert was issued several hours later and Garcia was taken into custody a short time later. The children were returned to family members safely.

Garcia, 25, was taken into custody around 12:30 p.m.

Police arrested Julio Caesar Bonilla Wednesday evening. They say he was the alleged getaway driver for Garcia.

Both men are preliminarily charged with murder and attempted murder. More charges are possible.
